This Week's Chicago Deal Sheet

Sperry Equities bought Washington Commons (shown) for $18M. The seller, EverWest, bought the asset for $25.2M in 2007, but defaulted on the building's loan in 2011. Rents in that part of the East-West Corridor haven't returned to their pre-crash levels, but Sperry believes it can capitalize on the asset as a market-timing play.
